Objectives

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is used to encrypt information passing between the host and server in order to increase security. When HTTPS access is enabled on the WAP200E, a self-signed SSL certificate is used by default to encrypt the session when accessing the graphical user interface. A SSL certificate can be generated from a Certificate Authority (CA) or an alternate self-signed SSL certificate can be generated to replace the access points default SSL certificate.

This document explains how to import and backup a SSL certificate on the WAP200E.
